With their days in DC now numbered, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are reportedly planning a swift exit from the nation’s capital to set up a permanent residency in the Garden State.
While the majority of the Trump’s family are expected to return to Manhattan when his presidency ends on January 20, Ivanka and Jared appear to be making preparations for elsewhere, according to the New York Times.
The couple are reportedly in the process of submitting plans to town officials in Bedminster, New Jersey, seeking to extend their ‘cottage’ on the grounds of the Trump National Golf Club.
Their plans reportedly call for an expanded master bedroom, bath and dressing room, two new bedrooms, a study, and a ground floor veranda – homely additions that hint that the property may be set to become their permanent abode.

Ivanka and Jared have reportedly submitted blue prints to town officials in Bedminster, New Jersey, seeking to extend their ‘cottage’ (shown above) on the grounds of the Trump National Golf Club
The couple recently expanded the home by 2,500 square feet back in 2015, adding a basement, a new chimney and a fireplace sitting room, photos posted to the First Daughter’s Instagram page show.
Should the new renovations be approved by town officials, it would make the ‘cottage’ more comparable to the couple’s $5 million house they currently rent for $15,000 per-month in the esteemed Washington neighborhood of Kalorama.
The Trump National Golf Club is also reportedly submitting plans which call for five more ‘cottages’, each boasting 5,000 square-feet, a recreation complex with pickleball courts, a spa and a yoga complex, in addition to a relocated heliport and a general store.
A friend of the family told the Times that the renovations have been underway for some time, but representatives of the president are set to present the plans to officials on December 3.
Ivanka and Jared are believed to deem the prospect of returning to New York to be impossible now, following Trump’s tumultuous presidency.
‘In an odd way, they will even have a harder time than Trump himself [returning to New York], brand management mogul Donny Deutsch told the Times. ‘He’s despicable but larger than life. Those two are the hapless minions who went along.’
When the Trump family moved into the White House, Ivanka and Jared had convinced observers they’d provide a moderating voice in the West Wing. But throughout the turbulent four years that have followed, the couple have reportedly struggled to fit in.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

The Times highlighted the couple’s experience with the Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School, located in DC, to compound this idea.
The couple, dubbed ‘Javanka’, enrolled their two eldest children in the private elementary school in 2017, which reportedly cause a heated divide between parents.
According to the outlet, a number of parents lobbied for the school to refuse the Trump children admission, while others urged tolerance, for the children were ‘not guilty for what they saw as the sins of their grandfather’.
But once enrolled,
